The Challenge of Infections in Frail Elderly: The Story of Mr. Nilsson

Sund-Levander M and Grodzinsky E

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: September 26, 2015

Signs and symptoms of infection in Nursing Home Residents (NHR) are often atypical with a lack of specific ones, causing a delay in diagnosis and treatment. The complexity of detecting infections in NHR can be explained by difficulties in understanding and interpreting non-specific signs and symptoms and co-existing chronic diseases that blur the clinical picture. The case of Mr. Nilsson illustrates the process from the first signs and symptoms of infection to diagnosis in an elderly person with...

Targeting of Myeloid Derived Suppressor Cells Using Anti-inflammatory and Pro-inflammatory Agents

Parvin Forghani and Edmund K Waller

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: October 03, 2015

Myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSC) have been considered to be key mediators of immuno-suppression in cancer. The numbers of MDSCs increased in the blood and in the tumor microenvironment during inflammation. Due to the strong correlation between inflammation and cancer that results in tumor progression through MDSCs-associated immune-suppression, it is posited that modulating MDSCs using anti-inflammatory drugs will enhance the activity of immunotherapy and antitumor immunity....

Metastatic Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Neck from Unknown Primary Sites: the Ottawa Regional Cancer Centre (ORCC) Experience

Osama Marglani, Ameen Zaid Alherabi, Ali Safar, Suliman Alghamdi, Libni Eapen, Helen Caetano and Martin Corsten

Article Type: Original Research Article | First Published: September 25, 2015

Metastatic squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) to the neck from an unknown primary site presents a challenging diagnostic and therapeutic disease entity, despite a thorough diagnostic workup. The optimal management of patients who have this syndrome is still unclear and controversial. We present our experience in management of patients with unknown primary....

Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis to Determine the Optimum Staging modality for Primary Breast Cancer

Berney M, Manning A, Carter M, Sacchini V, Kell M R. Barry M

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: September 24, 2015

Staging of primary breast cancer can radically alter the management if stage IV disease is accurately detected. A systematic review and meta-analysis were performed to determine whether conventional CT TAP or PET-CT provides the optimum staging modality. A meta-analysis involving 158 patients with primary breast cancer showed that PET-CT was more sensitive than CT-TAP for detection of metastatic disease (OR 3.28, 95% CI 2.37 - 4.53, p < 0.0001). A systematic review of 1780 patients undergoing PE...

Common Polymorphisms in the USF1 Gene and Cancer Susceptibility: A Meta-Analysis

Meng Zhang, Jian Bai1, Junjie Huang, Yukun Ge, Hu Xiong, Wei Lu, Jizhou Shi, Lu Fang, Song Wu and Zhiming Cai

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: September 21, 2015

Upstream transcription factor 1(USF1) has been identified to be implicated in the development of many cancer categories. In view of recent studies, several polymorphisms in USF1 gene appeared to exert diverse influence on cancer susceptibility. However, the association between USF1 polymorphisms and cancer susceptibility remains inconclusive due to the finite relevant published discoveries. Therefore, we conducted a meta-analysis by pooling all available published data on the susceptibility of U...

Potential Immune Modulatory Action of Mesenchymal Stem Cell-Derived Extracellular Vesicles in Type 1 Diabetes

Andrea Carpanetto, Chiara Gai, Enrica Favaro, Maria Maddalena Zanone and Giovanni Camussi

Article Type: Short Review | First Published: September 28, 2015

Several preclinical studies have shown potential immune-modulatory properties of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) in type 1 diabetes leading to phase I/II clinical trials. Immune-modulatory properties of MSC have been mainly ascribed to their secretome. The extracellular vesicles (EV) have emerged as paracrine mediators of MSC actions. In fact, MSC-derived EV have been shown to carry proteins and nucleic acids capable to mimic the effect of originating cells. In the present short review we discuss e...

Noise Analysis of Gene Regulatory Networks Using Particle Filter

Haixin Wang and Dawit Aberra

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: October 03, 2015

One of the most important properties in gene expression is the stochasticity. Gene expression process is noisy and fluctuant. In this paper, the noise of gene regulatory networks (GRNs) using polynomial model and S-system model is analyzed by proposed approach on the basis of particle filter. The measurement noise and process noise are analyzed to test noise effects on the synthetic GRNs. The relation among Root Mean Square (RMS) error, measurement noise, and system noise covariance is analyzed....

Lupus-Associated Pancreatitis: Clinical Aspects

Maria Helena Favarato

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: September 28, 2015

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a systemic autoimmune inflammatory disease, with several different clinical manifestations. Its annual incidence is about 5 cases per 100000 inhabitants. The prevalence is around 52 cases per 100000 inhabitants. The gastrointestinal tract may be affected, either by the disease itself or by adverse reactions of medications or by opportunistic infections. Although common, the incidence of gastrointestinal manifestations may be underestimated, as the symptoms m...

Eosinophilic Fasciitis Treated with Tocilizumab: Demonstration of Efficacy after Withdrawal and Re-Challenge in a Patient

Glen T D Thomson, Janine L Johnston and Brent R J Thomson

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: September 28, 2015

A 41-year-old man presented with clinical features of eosinophilic fasciitis (EF) confirmed on biopsy. The patient responded to high-dose prednisone but subsequent steroid sparing medication including methotrexate, hydroxychloroquine, etanercept, golimumab and rituximab failed to deliver steroid sparing response. Tocilizumab provided rapid and sustained improvement in the patient's symptoms and signs. Withdrawal of tocilizumab resulted in a flare of the clinical manifestations of EF; retreatment...

A Case of Rhabdomyolysis and Polyarticular Inflammatory Arthritis May be the Initial Presentation of Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML)

Yelliann Ruiz-Irizarry and Petros Efthimiou

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: September 24, 2015

Rhabdomyolysis and inflammatory arthritis are common rheumatologic conditions that manifest in people of all ages. Proximal muscle weakness associated to rhabdomyolysis is frequently the initial presentation of inflammatory myopathies such as dermatomyositis (DM) and polymyosistis (PM) both, extensively described in literature to be related to paraneoplastic process. Inflammatory arthritis has been associated to certain paraneoplastic syndromes, but not in relation to Chronic Meylogenous Leukemi...
